In brief: Warts

Each night before going to bed soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar, apply it to the wart and then hold it in place with a band-aid.
Leave it on all night, or if you like, 24 hours a day but change the soaked cotton and band-aid each evening for a week. The wart will swell and may throb as it reacts with the vinegar and then start to turn black within the first two days and in two weeks gone.

In brief: Warts

Warts are an infection of human skin by the human papilloma virus, and what we see is a growth of the epidermis into a kind of benign tumor.
The best treatment would kill the virus without harming the skin, and a prescription drug called zyclara can do this by getting your immune system to kill the virus. Otc wart medicines are weak acids, that try to dissolve the thick growth caused by the virus.
